Is anyone else getting hammered by absurd R22 costs from their mechanical contractors? Ours wants $30/LB for R22 and that is supposedly "at cost". Meanwhile, I can buy it off eBay for < $10/LB.

R-22 has been mostly phased out in new equipment in the United States (...), and has been replaced by other refrigerants with lower ozone depletion potential such as propane (R-290), pentafluoroethane, R-134a (1,1,1,2-tetrafluoroethane), and blended mixtures of HFCs such as R-409A, R-410A, R-438A, and R-507A. See refrigerant for specific components of the R-400 and R-500 HFC blends used to replace R-22.
